Your webmaster has decided to be an Absentee voter for the Sept 8 Primary, so I can share some detail first hand.

The process is very easy. Just use the link provided to fill out the request form. But hurry, ballots must be returned by 5PM election day. Note that the form supports applications for both the Primary and General election. If you apply for both, you will be sent only the Primary ballot for the party that you declare initially.

On August 17, all Nashua households should have received a postcard outlining absentee ballot requirements for both the Sept 8 primary and the Nov 3 general election.

In response to the coronavirus crisis, the Secretary of State and Attorney General are providing all NH voters the opportunity to register and vote in the state’s primary and the general election via absentee ballot.  According to a memo from the Secretary of State and Attorney General’s office, “voters should not have to choose between their health and exercising their constitutional right to vote”.

You can check the status of your application by visiting the Absentee Ballot Search.
